Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Some say it is a day Jews remember the Nazi murder of 6 million Jewish lives during World War ll. But really, it is a day for the rest of the world to remember. Even after 75 years it is rare to find a Jewish family anywhere in the world that doesn’t still live with the impact.
While the Holocaust is a tale of horrors, it is also a stunning contrast to the power of God’s Covenant. God promised to bring them out of their graves back into their homeland and He did just that! Check out http://watchmanbiblestudy.com/articles/1948PropheciesFulfilled.html
This year Israel celebrates her 70th year as a reborn nation–a nation that stands among the greats of the world in technologies, agriculture, education, military readiness and, most especially, humanitarian aid. They are again, and forever will be, God’s nation of light to the world. To deny this is to partner with the devil himself. He alone could be so blinded by his own darkness to think he could ever destroy what God has declared to be eternal! But he is once again trying to stir those dark embers of hate and set nations on fire once again to destroy the Jews. So today, any day, every day, we stand boldly with our Jewish brothers against all anti-Semitic language, politics, sanctions or attitudes. We pray for them as we would pray for ourselves. We support Israel the land, and Israel the people. We show honor this day to the courage and faith of this most remarkable people. L’Chaim!
That was then.
This is now!
